What is your biggest frustration...

by ZachGoh 10 replies
When it comes to:

-Selling Info Products
-Internet marketing in general?

For me, my biggest frustration initially was overwhelm with too many 'shiny objects' as well as a lot of bad advice from so-called 'gurus'.

What about you?

    My biggest frustration when it comes to my service is the amount of time I have to wait to hear back from prospective clients. I like to deliver my work as quickly as possible and respond to requests as soon as possible but a lot of my clients take days to respond which delays the whole process.

    I am also having a difficult time picking a niche. Probably because I am over thinking.

      I can understand what you mean. Following up with prospective clients is important, but at the same time you don't want to appear to be 'needy'. In the past, i've found giving a deadline for them to respond helps.

      Picking a niche; there are so many opportunities out there aren't there? What I like to do is break it down to 3 criteria
      -Is there an easily accessable market for this niche?
      -Is the market profitable? (higher transaction values, or low transaction value with volum)
      -Will I even enjoy entering this market?

    I agree with you about overwhelm! Everyday there's a product launch (or 15) and it's getting harder and harder to find the gems among them.

      I'd say that my biggest frustration is that there never seems to be enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do...

      I'm trying to outsource more stuff - but there's a limit to what you can outsource, and that takes time too!

      Give me just one more day in the week - and I'm sure I could get everything done.

        This is true. Sometimes I have to take a step back and analyse whether i really need to do some of the things in my day at all.

        I try to simplify and cut away all the excess stuff, and focus on the highest leverage tasks. (Usually bringing more sales, and ensuring product fulfillment is taken care of)

      When I started out many years ago, I faced the same problem. Too many product launches. Then I decided to unsubscribe from ALL of these marketers, and just like magic, all the product launches went away. Once you realize that you really don't "need" any of the products being offered, you will be much happier.

      I've stopped buying products, and spend more time implementing nowadays. I know exactly what you mean though

    There is an overwhelming amount of information and misinformation out there definitely but I would say that the most frustrating thing for me is finding the time to get through a percentage of the information. But then again, I don't really get that frustrated because I'm at peace

    When I give a lot of time to promoting, spending days and nights and don't see the minimum expected results, that's the mose frustrating thing,
    But Thanks to God, it only happened fewer times.
